Why try Gayquation?
We know you do not have time for games. Ask yourself: Is it possible you are not experienced in the dating arena, bad at flirting and ice breakers? Experiencing relationship challenges with men or just left an unfulfilling relationship? Maybe you’re fresh out of the closet or recently divorced? Maybe you have been unsuccessful finding love on-line… We also understand security and privacy risks associated with on-line dating and the disappointment that usually follows. We filter through the fake profiles and pics, hook up artists and the insincere. Tired of looking for love in all the wrong places? Ready to try something new and different? Want to find a results based solution to your relationship challenges?

We are here to help!

Our clientele are distinct men, the majority of our members are Doctors, Celebrities, Journalists, Lawyers, Professors, TV and Media professionals, Entrepreneurs, Executives and Corporate Professionals. Many are white and blue collar men or successful business-owners nationwide and internationally who simply do not have the time to find a perfect match or to waste time on trying to build a relationship with incompatible Men. Your time is invaluable, it’s the new currency.

Our highly trained matchmaking staff will remove the time-consuming elements of finding a quality introduction (and possibly a date) for you to create a streamlined, frustration-free experience. This is of paramount importance in understanding our process.

We filter through the thousands of profiles and pictures of men to try and deter the insincere, and to attract only those upstanding men with careers, an education, and generally fulfilling lives. As a rule, we use a stringent selection process. We first and foremost look for discriminating singles committed to a relationship minded lifestyle.

Your Matchmaking team makes constant contact to hundreds of men daily. Now granted, we are not showcasing you to that many men. Only showing your picture and selective information if an introduction is pending approval.

You just sit back and wait for qualified matches to be delivered to your inbox. Our members and potential candidates are real Gay and Bi Men looking for real connections and feel very optimistic and open about the experience of meeting new people and forming real relationships. They find this journey refreshing and it helps to develop confidence in knowing that the compatible match is looking forward to meeting you and expecting to hear from you as soon as possible. Totally exciting. Right?

How are you different from traditional matchmaking agencies?
Gay Cupid + Quality + Variety + Ever changing Internet + Value = Your Gayquation

Everything about our matchmaking model is geared toward offering a huge, ever-changing selection of quality Men that enable our members to indulge their unique dating style, fetishes and preferences. Gayquation brings the thrill of the hunt, the excitement of discovery and the satisfaction of trusting our professional instincts/ knowledge and knowing the potential match already wants to meet you. Our methodology is proven, modern, contemporary, efficient and based on scientific and factual evidence to support our model. We have hundreds of successful relationships which we have had the honor of introducing to each other.

Since Gayquation’s costs are substantially lower as opposed to traditional matchmaking, we can pass those cost savings on to you. The time and energy of the traditional search has been streamlined into our revolutionary dating system designed exclusively for gay men. Traditional methods don't seem to work for gay men which is why Gayquation was created. We are proud to be the leading progressive personal matchmaking service, with a unique focus on m4m chemistry and statistics that equal real results. No flip books, no blind dating, no pressure and you have the last say on if you decide to contact the potential match. You are in control of the whole process.

Our focus is on introductions, not love at first site. Our model is internet based, we will look everywhere and open doors that you may not have available to you. We make sure that the potential match is excited to meet you and we screen the matches to make sure they meet your specified criteria. Keep an open mind. We'll be introducing you to new men with each and every introduction. Then, it's up to Mother Nature whether or not you click. We Guarantee you will have a great experience.

We are constantly striving to have an extremely high bar on quality. Our tech team and our Matchmakers work closely together on processes and metrics to ensure we're consistently improving if not finding your perfect match right off the bat.

The word Matchmaking has the ability to generate different reactions, from dread to excitement and anticipation to fond memories and everything in between. But the concept in Europe and America has evolved in the last decade and become a very viable means of finding that special someone to share one’s life with. As professionals and industry experts, we have found that our unique style of Gay matchmaking appeals to a much broader clientele both in terms of age and purpose with clients from many professions and walks of life. Gayquation is attracting attention, setting trends in the LGBT community and changing society and the way they view M4M love.

What makes you more effective than traditional matchmaking agencies?
First off, we only work with gay men. Our matchmakers specialize in matching within the m4m community and fully understand their psychology and lifestyle. In fact, all our matchmakers are gay men themselves. Gay men... it’s who we know and what we do. :)

We do not use outdated flip books, subscribe to blind dates or put your picture out there for everyone to see. We use a real human eye to search aggressively through thousands of profiles, inside and outside our network, and reach out to numerous potential matches on your behalf every day. We value your privacy and confidentiality and only present you to men we have qualified based on your specific search criteria. This recruitment technique is applied at favored hunting grounds like dating and personal sites, social media sites, LGBT organizations, meetup groups, local resources to your area, mining other matchmaking agencies, networking events, etc - in addition to our extensive and ever-growing database of client and non-clients. We believe it's a good mix between the human element and a logical/systematic approach - an evolved matchmaking style that fits in today's swipe left/swipe right dating culture.

We are also proud to keep our rates the lowest in the industry while performing, what we believe, is more than 10x the work and effort than traditional matchmaking agencies or those that you may see on TV or Netflix. We don't force, prod or push two men onto each other - all criteria is met in both directions with zero surprises. We are only traditional in the sense that you may be matched to other clients. But once that pool is saturated, the real leg work begins during our headhunting phase, while keeping an eye on new entries into our network. Our matchmakers pride themselves on being transparent, communicative and honest with you, throughout the entire process. No sugar coating or white flags. In fact, all our clients are provided their own dedicated market report, which gives insight on their market size and viability, along with customized recommendations - all to improve your chances.

Hard-working approach. Incredible value. Instant gratification. Delivered right to your inbox.

Over time this resulted in a higher ratio of matches to successful dates. The co-founders are also proud gay men and understand firsthand how challenging it can be to find quality men that are genuinely seeking a long term relationship. They also wanted to make this available to everyone around the world, not just those in the Western world. Even during tough economic times, we all still seek love and companionship. What better way with matchmaking at a very low cost.
